Accelerating ventilator knowledge to help address global demand

Posted by JigSpace on August 24, 2020

When Medtronic plc openly shared their Puritan Bennett™ 560 (PB560) ventilator plans back in April to help boost global ventilator production, the blueprints were downloaded more than 200,000 times across the globe.

The medical technology company was an early user of the Jig Workshop Pro commercial software, so assisting them create specific and high-quality 'Jigs' for 3D assembly and maintenance training guides was a great way we felt we could support the initiative.

These Jigs reduce the time it takes manufacturers to learn how to assemble, operate and maintain the ventilator specifications provided through the blueprints – an important consideration given the global ventilator demand and the complexity of the technology.

It is easy to fall into the trap of under-selling when you manufacture products that are big, complex and expensive.

Unlike food or clothing manufacturers, who can send out samples to customers or distributors at a very low cost, heavy industrial manufacturers traditionally had to bring customers to their sites or transport their products to trade shows at great expense.

With today's reality of travel bans and supply-chain interruptions, this physical barrier has never been more pronounced.

Simple and effective training using augmented reality

How do you train remote communities to operate the latest drone technology, who have never seen an aeroplane up close or flown in one?

A piece of 3D software was the last thing Eric Peck, CEO of airborne logistics company Swoop Aero, thought he needed. But his mind quickly changed after seeing his CAD files get transformed into realistic and immersive presentations. Most importantly though was the ease and effectiveness in scaling this new way of learning out to hundreds of users on the ground.

For some of the most remote communities on Earth, getting access to life-saving vaccines is an ongoing challenge. In Vanuatu, an archipelago of 83 volcanic islands in the South Pacific, many children miss immunisations as their homes are so hard to reach. But with the help of drone technology and Jig Workshop Pro augmented reality (AR) app, that’s beginning to change.
